Watching the first set of games ahead of the Rams’ late kickoff against Washington in the McBae Bowl.

Cleveland Browns (0-1) at Baltimore Ravens (1-0)

The Browns could be much more interesting than anticipated if QB Deshone Kizer is the truth. An upset here on the road would make for a very, very interesting Browns outlook as they head out to face the Indianapolis Colts next week.

Buffalo Bills (1-0) at Carolina Panthers (1-0)

Gotta think QB Cam Newton holds home court here...unless RB LeSean McCoy is just not having it.

Arizona Cardinals (0-1) at Indianapolis Colts (0-1)

On one hand, you have Arizona trying to stave off an 0-2 start with QB Carson Palmer coming off of a pretty underwhelming start with just 27 completions on 48 attempts and three interceptions. On the other, you have the worst performing team in the NFL in Week 1 as the Colts got pounded by the Los Angeles Rams. We might get a bit of validation here prior to our own Week 2.

Tennessee Titans (0-1) at Jacksonville Jaguars (1-0)

Fascinating matchup here. The Titans’ playoff hopes would take a huge shot if they come out in an 0-2 hole. And the Jags’ defense looked LEGIT in Week 1 holding the Houston Texans to just 7 points. Oh, and mayonnaise pool.

Philadelphia Eagles (1-0) at Kansas City Chiefs (1-0)

Another great game here. Is Philly and QB Carson Wentz for real this season?

New England Patriots (0-1) at New Orleans Saints (0-1)

You can smell the desperation here. One of these teams is going 0-2. If it’s the Pats, the narrative of time coming for HC Bill Belichick and QB Tom Brady is gonna start creeping up. If it’s the Saints, HC Sean Payton could find himself on a very hot seat heading into October.

Minnesota Vikings (1-0) at Pittsburgh Steelers (1-0)

The Vikings will be without QB Sam Bradford, so they’re turning to backup QB Case Keenum. Vikings HC Mike Zimmer runs Fisherball better than Jeff Fisher does, so don’t count them out entirely...

Chicago Bears (0-1) at Tampa Bay Buccaneers (0-0)

Weirdest game of the day. Good luck, fantasy football players!
